29 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh, gods, oh gods. I just glanced up at the game tabs and saw the pause and thought it was my 3day/phase world game. Oh gods....
29 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks guys, unpause at will.
31 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: There once were a pair of dip players
who needed to do us a favor
"click unpause", it was said "you guys should have led"
"and....

Fuck it, its 2 am, I'm not trying for a goddam rhyme. Cmon guys, unpause.
31 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: o ok
31 Jan 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: You know, FS's internet did cut out last week and he NMR'd because of it. Perhaps the same is happening now? If that is the case, should we offer to leave the game on pause until he has stable internet? It seems the gentlemanly thing to do.
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Agreed, if he's having connection issues we should wait until they're resolved
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Friendly Sword owes me forty doubloons.
01 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: FS last seen an hour ago with no word.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Gah, I'm sorry. I can only access internet at the university, because I have no internet at home. I think thinga will be resolved one way or another by Monday if people are willing to wait that long?? Thank you for patience, all.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: sure
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Can do.
02 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: No problem, FS.
03 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: No worries
03 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: This is an outrage! I demand this game be canceled!!!

;-)
06 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: How many weeks has it been since we had a turn? 3? 4? :)
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: He wanted the loss to haunt knox as long as possible?
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: I miss Friendly Sword. =(
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yup... this game has kept me up at night... ;)
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Okay all, I am unpausing! Yaaaaay!
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: What!? We're playing!?
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Who am I again?
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: You're allied with Austria.
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: I am curious also, what was I doing two weeks ago?? Clearly, these light blue potions are the land...
07 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, remember, Germany, we had all discussed that plan where I got Budapest, Smyrna, Naples, and Munich in exchange for Norway.
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ah, the infamous english land fleet strategy! Impossible to defend if pulled off!
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Wait, wait, impossible to defend? England, you sly dog. I almost fell for it too!
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: I thought England was going for the NAO/MAO strategy, picking up the secret sc's that lie beneath. Otherwise known as "going Atlantean".
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: LOL... I'm going to have to remember that for my next round of Syrian Crescent, FS! :D
08 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: So, Italy, Turkey, we're all bouncing in Syria to keep the Austrians out, right?
08 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Damn it Russia! Now they know!
08 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Turkey disbanded the wrong unit anyway. I sense betrayal. Maybe he is working with the Austrians?
08 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: But... but that would be insane! Does he *want* the Austrians to win?? This is a Winner Take All game, dammit!
08 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Austria, you wily bastard.... we've all been played like pawns since the beginning!
09 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: zara... you have no idea how deep the rabbit hole is. I'm already 5 steps ahead of you!
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: This game is actually over now. GG all

*force draws game*
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: *clenches fist* Mods!
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Foiled againnn!!!
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I still miss Friendly Sword. =(
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Yeah. He is so friendly. And sharp.
10 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1907: He was the sharpest and the friendliest
10 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Darn. Well it's just a matter of time until I am eliminated I guess. ^^

Too bad. Sorry I ruined the game for all of you who are not Germany and England. :( :( :(
10 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: I am voting for a cancel if you think the game has been sufficiently messed up. I am also okay with drawing at any point.

Unfortunately, I am not entirely sure I am willing to countenance a slow creeping death to be followed by a four-way or three-way draw that doesn't include me, so I am afraid I may be forced to move my units in 'a particular way' so as to give 'a particular power' the ability to use their new-found strength as a springboard to a solo attempt.... should that undesirable outcome appear likely.
10 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: QUICK EVERYONE CANCEL
13 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1908: hello babies
13 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1908: We Salute Semck83, a Hero to All Anglos, and Some Others Such As Bermudans, Gibraltarians, and South Georgians.
13 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1908: Don't forget Falkland Islanders
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: gee gee, baybeee
17 Feb 12 UTC The Free Welsh have offered me exile. Love those mofos.

17 Feb 12 UTC Good game everyone
